>> amazing. it's little baby steps, but he's making them. >> progress is remarkable, considering the extent of life threat ng injuries this 27-year-old man received. he was in a coma for three months. he still can't use his legs. jimmy is the victim of an alleged drunk driver. >> how is physical therapy going? great? okay. he can barely speak above a whisper. right now hand signs are his preferred method of communication. how do you think you're doing? are you sure? good. okay. married for yuft three years, jimmy now relies a lot on his wife katherine. his family said he was a tremendous athlete. he served in the army working with military drone, receiving an honorable discharge in 2010. his passion? working on his motorcycles.
5:47 am
in june, jimmy was on his silver honda motorcycle traveling north on the 7300 block of hartford road. he was less than a mile from home. according to court records an suv traveling south crossed the center line and collided head on with the bike. jimmy's wife said he suffered traumatic brain injury, a lacerated liver and broken bones. >> it was extremely scary. it was terrifying. >> do you remember anything about what happened? nothing. a baltimore city officer who witnessed the wreck arrested the 35-year-old. he's charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. a court charging document claims the officer noticed his eyes were glossy and a strong odor of alcohol came from his breath. mr. werido could not stand up on his own and kept stumbling, had slurred speech and could bare
5:48 am
speak. he also refused to take a breath test to determine the alcohol content in his blood. that lack of evidence concerns the family. >> if you've got nothing to hide then take a breath test. if he's got something to hide, why is he allowed to hide it. >> under maryland law a driver may refuse a breath test. mothers against drunk driving said this does impact cases against suspected drunk drivers. >> we see a lot of cases get dropped, a lot of cases because there's no evidence. so without the evidence of the breath test, without the testing that's done with it, there's not a whole lot the prosecution can do. >> police can get a subpoena for a blood test if someone is killed in an alleged drunk driving accident, but madd. >> we don't see that happen as often. >> and that's what happened here. no blood test was ordered. the state did suspend his driver's license, but according to court records police pulled him over two months later and
5:49 am
charged him with driving on a suspended license. mothers against drunk driving said these types of accidents raise plenty of concern. the court has tried to strengthen drunk driving laws. it has worked hard to get lawmakers to require devices in the cars of first time defenders. if a driver drinks too much the device won't let the car start. but that effort failed. we went to werido's home to talk to him about what happened. he was there but his family told us he was unwilling to come downstairs. they say this has impacted their lives as well. >> if this has told me anything, it's taught me to value life. >> his wife and mother remain by his side as he continues physical therapy at the specialty hospital. >> we're not done yet. >> jimmy's family is worried maryland's breath test law and lack of evidence will mean an

7:18 am
i have in here oats and lentils and beans. >> these are things they want to have? >> these are things that are carbohydrates. even starchy vegetables like peas, potatoes, and fruit. here i have a big pack of sugar. obviously that's something to minimize to keep to a low and cookies. these types of processed sugars are the things to get rid of. as the complex carbohydrates like starchy vegetables and fruits and whole grains, those are the things that you want to have, but in moderation. the whole idea of a diabetic diet is carbohydrate control. so spreading those carbs throughout the day. the next thing to consider is how much carbohydrates should i be having to control my blood sugar? i'm not sure everyone can see, but i have what one serving of carbohydrates would look like. this is one slice of bread. it has approximately 15 grams of
7:19 am
carbohydrates. you can also look at it in terms of a fruit. a medium banana is going to have 20 grams of carbohydrates. >> okay. >> eight ounces of milk is also going to be about 15 grams of carbohydrates. >> how much do you want to have throughout the day? >> great question. for meals keep it anywhere between 30 and 670 grams. if you're having three meals a day you can have between 30 and 60 grams. but for snacks keep it to about 15 to 30. and again, that's gonna differ based on the person's activity level, the person's size, the person's age, etc. >> right. >> the next thing i wanted to discuss really quickly was the food label. so when you are shopping for foods, you want to make sure you are paying attention to labels. the first place you want to look at is the total serving size. you look up top and say the serving size. whatever it is, like on this cereal here it's one cup. the second place i look as a
7:20 am
diabetic is total carbohydrates. so in this example here, it's 31 grams. that's gonna be really important. like i said, you want to have about 30 to 60 per meal. so if you're having 30 in just this one food, you've got to be aware, okay, where are my carbohydrates coming from? are they coming from milk in my cereal, fruit in my cereal? you want to really get good portion control. >> all right. i think that this is probably, everybody should sit down and talk to a dietitian about what they should do. >> for sure. it's very individualized. there's a lot to learn. >> this is also good to remember for everybody in terms of portion control and keeping the energy up for everybody. >> right. exactly. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> don't go away. getting your house clean and organized for the holidays. but first events going on around
